Abstract

The article discusses the similarities between the approach taken by {U.S.} philosopher and educational reformer John Dewey to education and that of the Zen masters. The author believes that similarities between Dewey's ideas and those found in the Zen and Taoist traditions have little significance to discursive reasoning or scholarly texts and more to do with the manner in which he personally experienced the world.
